Opposition should join hands with the government in its efforts to strengthen national economy:

Dr. Aaliya Hashmi (Economist): The world has countered an unprecedented challenge in the form of Covid-19, which shriveled the global economy. The government presented the budget 20-21 in a very critical situation. Pakistan is under the conditions of IMF and keeping in view the current economic scenario, the government has proposed a very rational and reasonable budget. It is appreciable that budget have been passed by the opposition as well. The political differences should not hinder the progress. The opposition has not provided any convincing suggestions and strategy to improve the federal budget. Passage of Finance Bill is a victory of government’s agenda to provide relief to down-trodden and marginalized segment of society. The government is taking concrete measures to increase imports and strengthen national economy. It is appreciable that Pakistan has started producing protective kits and ventilators to contain Covid-19.  Opposition should join hands with the government in its efforts to strengthen national economy.
